Dividends4Life: Attractive International Dividend ETFs

Attractive International Dividend ETFs

Posted by D4L | Thursday, May 23, 2013 | | 0 comments »

This year may well turn out to be the year of the dividend. In the first quarter, dividend increases by U.S. companies totaled $14.5 billion, according to Standard & Poor's. During the quarter, 944 dividend increases were reported, up from 677 in the first quarter of 2012, said S&P. Those 944 increases far outpaced the 135 negative dividend actions seen in the quarter. While some talk of dividend insanity and a crowded, overheating market for dividend ETFs, investors are ignoring the noise.

International dividend ETFs are part of this equation, too. In fact, several new global dividend ETFs came to market last month, adding to a growing menu of options for income investors that want some non-U.S. exposure: FlexShares International Quality Dividend Dynamic Index Fund (NYSE: IQDY), iShares Asia/Pacific Dividend 30 Index Fund (NYSE: DVYA) and iShares Emerging Markets Dividend Index Fund (NYSE: DVYE).
